  1. Measuring Residual Concrete Strength After Penetration and Blast

    SBC: Intelligent Fiber Optic Systems Corporation            Topic: DTRA07010

    During Phase I, IFOS demonstrated the feasibility of using embedded optical Fiber Bragg Grating (FBG) sensor networks to measure resistance to penetration (for subsequent weapons) in concrete damaged by a weapon projectile. FBG sensors are well suited for monitoring dynamic strain in concrete structures due to their small size, low cost, ability to be embedded internally or surface mounted; and th ...

  2. Improvements in Scintillation Technology for Detection of Nuclear Radiation

    SBC: Radiation Monitoring Devices, Inc.            Topic: DTRA07004

    High-resolution scintillation crystals and crystal arrays are important components of current and future handheld and arrayed detectors (used for DOD/DTRA applications), and scintillation spectrometers (routinely used in high energy physics research, medical imaging, diffraction, homeland security, nuclear waste clean-up, nuclear treaty verification and safeguards, and geological exploration). Un ...

  3. Genetically-Evolved Digital Networks for Target Planning

    SBC: Seidcon, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    Target planning is one of the most significant technical challenges to developing a tactical or strategic war plan. The requirement is to analyze considerable amounts of data concerning the enemy, common and allied force situation and provide results in a form useful for quality decision making in a short period of time. Due to the complexities of mission planning, these systems will becom more au ...

  4. Batteryless Sensors for Intrusion Detection and Assessment of Threats

    SBC: Anro Engineering, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    A batteryless and wireless sensor for intrusion detection and assessment of threats which requires no battery, external power or wiring is proposed. These types of sensors derive energy from passing vehicles or persons, and indicate their presence, location, speed, etc., via a self-generated short-range radio signal. These sensors require no maintenance, and can be inconspicuously placed in window ...

  5. Optical Time of Arrival Measurements

    SBC: CARPENTER RESEARCH CORP.            Topic: N/A

    THE ULTIMATE OBJECTIVE OF THE PROPOSED WORK IS TO PROVIDE THE GOVERNMENT WITH PROVEN MINIATURE PRESSURE INSTRUMENTATION FOR MEASURE DUSTY FLOW BOUNDARY LAYERS IN SMALL-SCALE HE, WINDTUNNEL, AND SHOCK TUBE TESTS. SMALL PROBES ARE NEEDED FOR MAKING MEASUREMENTS NEAR THE WALL OR DUST BED. PHASE I WILL EVALUATE THE TECHNICAL CAPABILITIES OF EXISTING SMALL SENSORS FOR USE IN SNOB/GREG PROBES AND WILL I ...

  6. Directed Mono-Energetic Gamma Source

    SBC: Radiabeam Technologies, LLC            Topic: DTRA08001

    For long-range detection of Special Nuclear Materials, an intense beam of mono-energetic directed gamma rays is required. In this proposal, a novel, high-energy, high peak- and average-brightness gamma-ray source based on Inverse Compton Scattering is described. Novel techniques are introduced to increase the flux of the source for active photonuclear interrogation at stand-off range. In Phase I, ...

  7. A fast pulsed, high flux directed neutron source for large stand off detection of special nuclear materials

    SBC: Alameda Applied Sciences Corporation            Topic: DTRA08002

    Alameda Applied Sciences Corp proposes to develop a fast pulse, directed, fast neutron source to detect special nuclear materials at large stand off. Our source offers a

  8. Cost-Effective Gas Flow Data Sensors

    SBC: Exquadrum, Inc.            Topic: DTRA08007

    Current high energy, multi-room test facilities operated in support of Defense Threat Reduction Agency (DTRA) efforts suffer from a lack of robust sensors that can provide a cost-effective approach to obtaining dynamic-pressure induced gas flow data during internal detonations events. Exquadrum, Inc proposes a new sensor package that utilizes existing piezoelectric sensor technologies, but incorp ...

  10. High-Z Polymer Composites as a New Category of Gamma Scintillator Materials

    SBC: LC TECH            Topic: DTRA08002

    We propose a radically new approach to gamma scintillator materials based on high-Z polymer composites. These composites contain two key components molecularly dissolved in a polymer matrix that serves as the binder: (1) high-Z compounds for stopping high-energy gamma radiation; (2) luminescent conjugated polymers that functions as the scintillation activator. The molecular-level dissolution ensur ...
